I made this exactly as the instructions specified and it was excellent. I enjoyed it as a vegetarian main dish and found it very filling and satisfying. The beets, risotto, kale, and goat cheese complimented one another perfectly!
Made this for my wife for Valentines Day. We both loved it! Excellent Recipe! Thank You!
I gave this 5 stars because I made a lot of substitutions, I think without it wouldn't have been as good. I left out the chard, goat cheese and walnuts completely and put in butter, parmesean and mozzarella instead, as well I threw in a tbs. of garlic with the onions. I think without the substitutions the beets might have overpowered the risotto. I served this with CL potato crusted snapper with yellow pepper salsa.
Had to adjust the recipe by adding quite some liquid to get the beets to soften. That in itself was fine. The risotto was really mushy and the beets overpowered the dish.
Unusual and very delicious, but not a main dish. A good side for the adventurous eater to have along with a simple meat like an italian turkey sausage, roast chicken, etc. Needed more salt and a dash of lemon. I chopped beets very fine in food processor so preparation was easy. As a side dish, this recipe makes about six servings, maybe more.
